Being in contact with a strange man

Q: I have one of my known she is a non muslim. She is married and have a kid also. She have asked a question that what should one do if one’s husband is not fulfilling his responsibilities like as in he is busy in his job and life busy with gadgets mobile laptops. Now the lady has in laws and her kid to be looked after so ultimately all the responsibility comes on her looking after kid, in laws and managing all household chores and everything related to relatives and all. He doesn’t also gives money as per the requirements so that lady has to do job also. I suggested to her to embrace Islam because that is the only way one can get solutions for everything and one can be successful in this life and the life of the hereafter. So I want to have an answer from you so that I can pass on the correct thing to this lady.


A: A man is not supposed to be in contact with a strange woman, whether Muslim or non-Muslim. You should immediately terminate being in contact with her or speaking to her. 

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
